Spring Meal Plans: Week 4


Spring Meal Plans - Week 4 | Life by Naomi

This week of recipes is a really good one. There are some of our favourite recipes – Tim absolutely loves the Chicken Parmigiana, and the Sweet and Sour recipe is brilliant. I think it’s a good mix of healthy variety.

I haven’t listed a pudding for Sunday as I usually do as I haven’t trialled one, but the lamb is fairly light, so you could indulge in some kind of gorgeous chocolate creation. I’m holding out for Easter Sunday.

    I don’t think I’ve ever tried chicken Parmigiana but having just goggled it, it looks yummy. Enjoy. Mich x

      It’s gorgeous. A bit more faff than I’d probably do for pasta, but totally worth it. You could hide loads of vegetables in the sauce as well.
